Justin has won the Democratic Party nomination for Congress in Tennessee's Seventh Congressional District, which was held today. For some reason no one knows the answer to, Tennessee hold its nominating primaries on a Thursday.

Just checked https://fivethirtyeight.com/ and they have Justin trailing in their final forecast before the election 65% to 31%. They rate Justin as having a 0.1% chance of winning the election. Ouch!

Following his race on Twitter, it's clear Justin has worked very hard. It's apparently one of the most Republican districts in the country and was always going to be an uphill fight. He has much to be proud of.

The prediction proved to be accurate. Justin Kanew did lose the election. The Republican got 66.8% of the vote while Justin got 32.1%. Still, Justin got 81,574 votes and given that he was a little known underdog when the race started, he can be proud of that.

I closely followed Justinís campaign daily from the time he announced. Like Beto, he took no PAC money and relied on individual donors throughout. Th race had an impact in that virtually no Republican ran unopposed for Congress anywhere in the country and that is as it should be in a democracy.
He ran a smart race in an unforgiving environment. Of that he can take pride.
